Editorial Foreword
Welcome to the eleventh edition of the UNRV Roman History newsletter. It’s been more then five months since our last newsletter and we hope to have more regular updates in the future to stay up to date. Since our last newsletter we had our second successful Historical Essay Competition and we upgraded our community forum to what we believe is a far more pleasing look with extra user features.

1. Interesting threads from the Forum
===============================
Why was Caesar a great general?
Democracy in the Empire
The Growth of Catholicism, How and why did it occur?
Why Romans Didn't Charge
Romans eating out, did the plebeians really live on takeaways?
Where were the Scythians? Herodotus isn't clear...

Also… while HBO’s television series “Rome” has had its final curtain call in the USA, Season 2 will be making its BBC debut in the UK in the coming months. Discuss the highs and lows of the series, the historical veracity, your favorite scenes and actors, etc. in our dedicated sub-forum!

2. New pages on UNRV.com
========================
Over the last couple of months we have added several articles to the era of the “Decline of the Empire” is now completed and we started with the “Decline of the Empire” Thanks to a reader contribution, we've also added an interesting article on Mauritius Tiberius. Additionally, we encourage contibutions from our community and general readership as part of the learning experience!

3. Forum Upgrade and Historical Essay Competition
=======================
Early in the year we held a Historical Essay Competition that was won by forum member ‘The Augusta’. We received several compelling entries on a variety of Roman historical subjects and you can read the winning essay as well as all entires in the Academia Forum.

The biggest change on unrv.com since the last newsletter is the optical enhancement of the forum. It has a fresh new look and feel (with what we feel is a more ‘Romanesque’ attitude) along with added functionality. The community Blogs and the Gallery sections also benefited from these upgrades… why not have a look for yourself.

4. Archeological News
===================
Highlights of Archaeological News: “Emperor Maxentius Insignia Found in Rome”, “Roman descendants found in China?” “Find of Roman coin shows ancient Britons in a new light”, “Gladiators' graveyard discovered”, “Roman Towns Built With Astronomy” and “Roman Woman Had Golden Smile” to name just a few.

All the latest news on archaeology, including both Roman and Other international news can be seen at our Archaeological News Forum.

5. Books and Book Reviews
========================
Our review section keeps on growing thanks to our forum contributors.

New reviews are Rome’s Gothic Wars, The Conquest of Gaul, Livia - First Lady of Imperial Rome, Famine and Food Supply in the Graeco-Roman World, A History of the Roman World, 753 to 146 BC, Rome, Inc., Carthage: A History, I, Claudius by the BBC and The Last Roman: Romulus Augustulus and the Decline of the West. All reviews can be read in our review section.

There are now already over 60 quality reviews in total. We make a concerted effort to provide books to community historical review team. Whether we distribute newly published ‘review copies’ from the publicists or purchase the books outright, we hope to reward our consistent contributors by providing said books for their own libraries.
